Andy Warhol's Children's Illustration

What a find! We had The Little Red Hen as kids, but it wasn't Andy Warhol's version. 

The vibrant technicolor artwork, an outlier in the warm pastel color schemes of 1950s children's illustration, offers a fascinating prequel to Warhol's budding pop art aesthetic -- one you can acquire for under $5, not a bad deal for rare, limited-edition work by one of only seven artists in the world to have ever sold a canvas for $100 million.
